Plot & Details
Golf meets baseball in this comedy that tells the story of Anthony (Babe) Lombardo, a has-been professional baseball player who was only moderately famous. During his career, the now middle-aged Babe earned several fortunes but enthusiastically lost them all on bad business enterprises. Now he is deeply indebted to the IRS and in desperate need of quick cash. He has nowhere to turn as his hard-working wife has grown tired of the get-rich-quick schemes and his best friend, Lou, a prominent used car dealer, refuses to loan him another dime. Things look bleak until Babe develops a radical new golf swing. Everyone around encourages him to use the swing in pro golf tourneys where he could win a bundle, but unfortunately, Babe has other ideas, including the making of an instructional video.
